Dental Crowns and Bridges – Top Natural-Looking Restoration Techniques

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns and bridges are permanent prosthetic devices used to correct problems such as weakened, damaged, or missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures, crowns and bridges are attached to existing teeth with cement and cannot be removed for routine cleaning. Before a dental crown or bridge is created, the affected teeth must be prepared. First, the dentist reduces the size of the natural teeth to make room for the device. Next, impressions of the teeth and gums are made so that an exact mold is available for the dental lab to create the crown or bridge. If the crown or bridge is to be made from porcelain, the dentist will determine the exact color of the patient’s other teeth. While permanent prosthetic teeth are being created at the lab, patients will wear a temporary dental crown or bridge. When the permanent device is ready, it will replace the temporary one, and be cemented into place.

What Can a Dental Crown or Cap Do?
Crowns are useful for the following situations:

  • Weak, fracture-prone teeth
  • Insufficient tooth structure to support a filling
  • Severely damaged teeth
  • Bridge attachment
  • Covering for a dental implant
  • Cosmetic restoration
  • Protect teeth after root canal treatment

What Can a Dental Bridge Do?
Dental bridges can solve the following problems:

  • Missing teeth
  • Gaps caused by tooth shifting or rotation
  • Bite problems

Dental Crowns and Bridges: How Long Do They last?
Many dental crowns and bridges last a lifetime, but they can become loose or detach from your teeth over time. To increase the longevity of your crown or bridge, practice good oral hygiene, avoid chewing hard foods, and see your dentist in Ocala regularly. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy will reduce the chances of dental disease and bone loss that can cause dental prosthetic devices to fail. To learn more about dental crowns and bridges, make an appointment with an affordable dentist to discuss your options.
